Get Ready For Jamboree-On-The-Air


The 2013 Jamboree-On-The-Air event is scheduled for Oct. 19-20, but you’ll want to start getting ready now.

JOTA gives you the chance to experience the joys of amateur radio by conversing with other Scouts in your community, across the country, and, just maybe, around the world.

Scouts of any age can participate, from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and Venturers.

Contact your local Scout council and see what may already be planned in your area. Or, grab a trusted adult and contact a local ham radio operator or a local amateur radio club.
